 The special stamp set we have for you this month is:

"Marsh Silhouettes"


 The mini stamp set we have for you this month is

"Lily of the Valley"
                                                      



Today's set is too fun with its cute little aliens and space images.  Both my cards today are doing double duty.  The first one is also for Shirley's CCEE Stampers challenge -- Let it all hang out or over.  When I first read the theme for this challenge, I didn't have a clue what it meant.  Then I thought -- maybe she meant use the "out of the box" technique.    I stamped the alien and cut the Labels 4 shape, leaving part of his body and legs "hang out."  If you want to "hang out" with the CCEE stampers and play along, check out our blog.


My second card was also made for another challenge -- the Speedy TV Inspiration Challenge.  As I'm the hostess for this challenge, I made sure the theme coincided with today's new set.  This week's challenge is called appropriately enough "Outer Space."  I haven't made a spinner card in a very long time, but that space ship image just screamed "movement."  In case you've never played the Speedy TV Inspiration Challenge, I'd love for you to check it out.  I post three Pinterest photos and ask that you make a card using one of the photos as inspiration.  BTW, all three of my sample cards are different -- only one of them is space-related, even though the theme is "Outer Space."  BTW, by participating in the Inspiration Challenge, you have one more chance to win a free stamp set.



I hope you check out the cards made by the rest of the design team and comment, comment, comment.  Remember, the more you comment, the more chances you have to win a free stamp set.

I love those alien's legs hanging out...too cute. And, the other one has such a catchy sentiment for a get well card. That would surely make someone feel better.
